COVID-19 has forced every small business to rethink and adjust plans. OutWire757 is doing the same. While our future remains uncertain, we remain dedicated to promoting the people, events and places that make Hampton Roads a great place to live out and proud.
One of the immediate changes is that the Summer 2020 edition of OutLife757 Magazine will be published digitally. Our distribution model relies on major events and gathering places to reach our readers. With local and regional Pride celebrations and other festivals cancelled this summer and with public gatherings limited, producing a print magazine is not a viable option.
To ensure that we continue to cover all of our LGBTQ owned and allied businesses and organizations, we have also reduced our advertising rates by 50%. And our other online marketing products are always available for immediate reach to our audience. You can take a look at the options here.
And we still offer a bunch of freebies to help you get the word out.
If you are hosting a virtual event, you can add it to our calendar of events at no charge. It will be included in our weekly newsletter on the Thursday prior to your event.
Also if you have any news we can help you share via our web site or email newsletter, please send email us at editor at outwire757.com.
We are so grateful for your support over the years, and we truly do believe that we’re all in this together. And we’re eager to help you get through this.
